EMMYS: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jim Parsons Reign in Comedy

Julia Louis-Dreyfus came backstage on a high of winning back-to-back lead comedy actress trophies.

But she was quick to remind journos that she’s lost in the Emmy race far more than she’s won.

“I’ve lost 10 times,” she says. “It is delicious to win.”

Jim Parsons has also been in the winners circle twice before, but he wasn’t any less stunned by his third victory for “The Big Bang Theory.” Like Louis-Dreyfus, he credited the quality of “Big Bang” writing for giving him the platform to shine.

“The writing is very much the linchpin of whether it works or doesn’t and what keeps (the show) enjoyable going into its seventh year,” Parsons said. “The quality of the writing and the commitment of our writers to keep it funny and true to what these characters were from Day One.”

Louis-Dreyfus vowed to sleep with her latest Emmy. Parsons said he had no big party plans for the night, despite plenty of options.

“I prefer to read in bed,” he said. “I might go home and say hello to the dogs. That would be a hell of a celebration for me.”
